Financial Assistance Program
At Sarah Bush Lincoln (SBL), our doors are open and care is available to all persons regardless of their income levels. Medically necessary procedures are covered by the Sarah Bush Lincoln Financial Assistance Program. Financial Assistance is available to qualifing individuals when seeking care from any of the SBL-employed medical staff.
We will work with community members to help simplify the business aspect of our relationship. For example, we will help patients obtain payment from third parties such as Medicaid and Medicare by answering their questions and assisting them with applications. We offer financial assistance for persons who meet the financial terms once they’ve submitted the necessary paperwork, and we invite patients to apply for financial assistance when they cannot cover account balances after we’ve received payments from third-party payers (like Medicaid, Medicare and insurance companies).
If you have any questions about the SBL Financial Assistance Program, please call Patient Financial Services between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday at (800) 381-0040.
For your convenience, a secure box for payments is available 24/7 near the cashier window just west of the main lobby.
